fact is, he brought more positives than negative.s if hes not there last year we dont make the playoffs.

And I suppose nobody could have scored those goals if he wasn't there ? Still pure speculation, thanks.

He's still without contract eh ? Nobody wants him it seems...

Maybe the reason why he hasn't signed anywhere yet is because he's still recovering from an injury and can't play yet? There have been reports that the Lightning have interest when he is healthy enough to play again..

Didn't know he was still hurt, thanks. But, still, our PP finally recovered, so Tampa can sign him if they want...

Yeah he is still recovering from knee surgery he had this summer and he should start practicing again by the beginning of December if everything goes well for him..

Saying someone else would have scored them IS speculation, thanks. I gave u a fact - he scored 4 GWG. Like it or not that is a FACT. Im not saying we should sign him, im saying he brought more positives than negatives. Guy is injured and is a fringe player, of course he wont have a contract

That particular stat gets you nowhere because so many members of the team had game-winning goals. Besides, the games would have been tied at the time he scored those goals and it's at least possible that the Habs would have gone on to win those games anyway.

In addition to blunders that led outright to losses, there were also hidden negatives you may have overlooked. Did any of his blunders result in goals that allowed the opponents to reach OT? If they did, then, even if the Habs won the games in OT, it would have given the opponents extra points in the standings. Did his turnovers cause his teammates to take penalties, resulting in PPG against the Habs? His turnovers anywhere on the ice always lost the Habs offensive time even if they recovered the puck or the goaltender made saves and froze the puck.

Here's what Ek had to say about the Habs and Bieksa today...

Quote:
Also, the Habs, interested since July, are reportedly considering upping the ante...

"To date, Vancouver has been patient, and it may pay off for them. The Canadiens are considering making this deal bigger...expanding it to perhaps include a nice draft pick which they previously would not part with..."
Is he talking about a future high pick or one already drafted? I think he is hinting at the Habs including Tinordi... I'd rather keep Tinordi and whatever else he thinks is going the other way than deal it for a UFA to be Bieksa..

He is talking about the Habs and the Stars for Richards, not Bieksa. He is saying that the Habs are willing to up the anti for Richards to beat out Toronto, NY Rangers and Vancouver.

Not that I think the Habs can get Richards, BUT... if we could replace Gomez with Richards I truly believe that is what separates us from bring a true bona fide contender. As much as I liked the idea of Gomez, he hasn't delivered. Richards is a true star and gives us a true 1-2 punch at centre that we need.

I don't see the Stars bite at Gomez....really a franchize who struggles with money and Gomez has 8 million this year, 7.5+5.5+4.5 Give that money to Richards
Makes zero sense from the Strars but if true, what could the package be like.

Gomez,1top prospect +1st ? Ungly deal for the stars but they have the cap so.....

So the Habs are interested in both Richards and Bieksa then?

Why would he say "To date, Vancouver has been patient, and it may pay off for them " if he were referring to Richards and not Bieksa?

Edit.. Here is the title for that blog from his twitter feed...

Logically Richards could come as a rental and we could resign him in the off-season and send down Gomez to the AHL or trade him ?

So essentially we would over pay to get Bieksa? I call poppycock.

There is no way we could trade for Richards unless salary goes the other way. Richard's cap hit is similar to Gomez's so what could make sense is : Richards for Gomez +++++ but I really doubt the Stars bite on that. Otherwise we could send them Hamrlik (who is an UFA they could not re-sign to save money) instead of Gomez but with Markov out doing so would be pure folly.

With Richards this team is a contender but I just don't see how getting him is at all possible.

I don't get the Richards rumour, why on earth would the Stars deal Richards for Gomez? They still have time to get an extension worked out with Brad and if it doesn't work out for them why would they want Gomez?

Well its obvious. They don't want to pay Richards another 7m extension but are fine with Gomez.

Gomez is virtually untradeable. Another team might overlook his lack of production so far this season but his contract would be unacceptable. As for the rumors, they make no sense. Richards is a far better player than Gomez while Bieksa is a Dman, not a first or second line center,
